Foundation -


The LAFC Foundation furthers our Club’s mission of uniting the world’s city through the world’s game. We bring joy to people and serve as a force for good in our community by supporting critical programs and bringing the indomitable Black & Gold spirit wherever we go.


The LAFC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, is the social impact arm of the Los Angeles Football Club. Established in 2018, we’re dedicated to supporting local organizations, partners, and infrastructure that bring the world’s game to more young people and bring them the life skills and resources they need to be successful off the pitch. Our superpower is our ability to leverage our LAFC brand and our passionate community of fans and stakeholders. Bringing the indomitable Black & Gold spirit wherever we go helps make our good work even better.

We do this work in many ways:

Safe Places for Play: In partnership with MLS and local public schools, we’re honored to have installed more than 40 futsal courts at schools in underserved communities across the greater LA area over the last six years. Foundation staff visit principals, physical education teachers, and after-school staff at each site - and are always inspired to see how these courts are used universally as a space for learning, play, and wellness.

Most recently, The Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC), The LAFC Foundation and the 3252 Independent Supporters Union have teamed up with the City of Cudahy to launch a new youth soccer league in memory of Mauricio “Mo” Fascio, at the future site of Colibrí Field in South Los Angeles.

The new youth soccer league kicks off in Summer 2024 and will be available to all participants at a low cost. Funds to cover the full operational, material and maintenance costs of the league are being raised jointly by The 3252, LAFC, and the LAFC Foundation. Help us commemorate and continue to spread the joy and togetherness that Mo shared with our beloved LAFC community.

Sports Programming + Success off the Field: While we continue to grow our portfolio of courts, we also focus on ensuring that the courts are being used. We work closely with our partners to develop high-quality, complementary programming for the students and neighborhoods benefiting from each court. Finally, using our futsal sites as launching pads, we also bring additional programs to address COVID-19-related learning loss, improve health and wellness outcomes, and provide social-emotional development tools that will serve our participants for years to come.

By supporting the programming and infrastructure that allow young people to access our favorite game, we provide more than fun and physical exercise – we provide a pathway to success beyond the pitch, building fundamental life skills and friendships along the way.

In addition, we’re proud to be members of the Alliance, a collaborative Diversity Equity and Inclusion initiative led by LA84 in partnership with all 11 LA professional sports franchises. Together, we look to address racial injustice and issues uniquely facing communities of color.

To date, we’ve had the privilege to positively impact over 30,000 youth in the Los Angeles area. We are excited to watch this number grow exponentially in the years to come – and couldn’t do any of it without you.
